Sorry, maybe it's just me; at nearly $250 per person with the Fast Pass, the tickets, the small amount of food and drink, I was expecting to be really scared. The monsters are pretty cool and the attention to detail in the costuming is impressive. This is great for teenagers, but I was expecting my heart to race with excitement of being scared and the only heart racing I got was when the money was flying out of my wallet.

I LOVE UNIVERSAL STUDIOS.

Having been on every ride and every simulator numerous times I will never get tired. From Simpsons Land to Rip Ride Rocket or Harry Potter to Shrek no one does it like Universal.

Moes Diner in Simpson Land is a great place to eat and always amazes me how speedy they are. Do not be put off by big queues as they go down very quick and also servers find you a table, this worlds tremendously as no one is just say there waiting and I have never seen a dirty table or anyone stood with food unable to sit.

Universal Group do a fab job with the refil cups $14 to buy and then $5 per day unlimited refil. They has chips now in the base of the cups and refil stations so reducing a lot of the queues. Can' wait for Fast and Furious next year

We got a 14 day pass and visited three times since being in Orlando.

The wait times have never been long - the max we’ve waited for any of the rides is 45mins. The best and scariest ride by far is the Rocket Rollercoaster, the vertical climb is super scary. The Harry Potter ride is also amazing. MIB is super fun!

Lockers are free for the rides as long as you don’t go over the free time limit.

We also did Halloween Horror Nights 27, we got express passes $95 each (ouch!) but well worth skipping the massive queues. HHN is amazing, the scare zones and houses are the best. Just kinda pricy to do the express passes.

Early closing end September for Halloween makes this experience really expensive. long waiting times for rides with misleading wait times. 1 hour turned out to be nearly three. With 5 o'clock closing this was a real problem. Only able to do 3 rides. 234 usd for two people not good d value for a repeat visit. Seems all rides geared for fast track at significant extra price. Food prices crazy no competition. Think twice lots of other things to do that are equally or more enjoyable for less money. Parking now 20 usd yes 20 usd. Why, all part of the same attraction.
